Discovering Your Roots

Time:March 16th, 3-6pm & March 17th, 9am-5pm
Location:Boise State BoDo (301 S. Capital Blvd.)
Boise State and the Basque Museum & Cultural Center will be sponsoring a geneaology event March 16th and 17th at Boise State BoDo. There will be professional geneaologists from Ireland as well as local geneaologists to help those interested in researching their family histories in Boise and beyond!
Sunday March 16, we will have introductions of the visiting geneaologists as well as discussion with some local researchers beginning at 3pm at Boise State BoDo. We will then be viewing the Basque documentary Gazta Zati Bat. (Taken from Gaztazatibat.eu):
"This story commences in a small town in the Basque Country (Euskal Herria) which is known throughout the world for its cheese. Its inhabitants leave their differences caused by the last armed conflict in Europe to one side so that they can ndertake a mission: to be able to choose what they are in the world. This adventure will convert them into witnesses of the historical events of two nations which will be big news in Europe: Scotland and the Basque Country. A great story written in small letters. A documentary about the new era which makes us look towards the future."
There will a reception to follow at the Basque Museum & Cultural Center (611 Grove Street)
Monday, March 17, the visiting geneaologists will go a bit more in-depth regarding the research and resources that are necessary in finding your family history. There will a break for lunch and then more information and direction into researching. There will be a final reception and celebration of St. Patrick's Day at the Basque Museum & Cultural Center at 5pm.
Sunday is free of charge but donations are greatly appreciated. Monday, the cost will be $15 for the geneaology workshop, and the reception will be free of charge (donations appreciated). If you have any questions, or would like to sign up for the workshop, contact the Basque Museum & Cultural Center at 343.2671
